ms access line feed
Thanks David:

Yeah, my problem was that I had table data in an MS Access database. One of
the fields was OFFICE HOURS, which was a free form field to enter operating
hours.  This particular office had 3 different sets of hours, so for each
entry I put in the field I hit the ENTER key to start a new line and enter
the second set of hours in the same field, hoping the line feed the 3
different office hour sets would show up on 3 different lines in HTML after
it was transformed.  So much for the easy way out.
